A short while ago in a joint IDF-ISA activity, an IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist squad in the southern Gaza Strip that was preparing to launch long-range rockets. The aforementioned squad is responsible for the firing of the Grad rocket towards southern Israel this past Wednesday.
A hit was identified and the launching attempt was thwarted.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will continue to operate with strength and determination against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
